Riverlily (formerly rendezvous) is the perfect getaway for friends or family that want both privacy and time together with separate spaces. These 2 beautiful riverfront cottages have huge private decks that provide magnificent river views. The 2 cottages are ideally located just a short walk to the beach and the town of Guerneville. There is a yard with steps that lead to a private dock and a lovely spa with a river view. There are numerous wineries within minutes of the cottages. Relax, enjoy fine wines, swimming or canoeing off your own dock, visit beautiful Armstrong woods or the Northwood golf course which is 10 minutes away. Only 90 minutes from San Francisco, 2 hours from Sacramento. The scenic California coastline is about a 20 minute drive. Each cottage has queen beds in the bedrooms and a queen pullout couch. The 2 bedroom cottage sleeps 4-6. The 1 bedroom cabin sleeps 2-4. Good amenities and great kitchen space in each. We provide wifi and TV with streaming netflix and huluplus. The cottages are both charming and comfortable, everything is supplied to make your visit memorable. We prefer to book for 1 week minimums during July and August. June, September and off peak holidays are 3 night minimums. Thanksgiving weekend 4 nights. We also require a refundable security deposit and a cleaning fee.

My friends and I had an amazing time at Anne's place!! We would most definitely come back. The setting is gorgeous, both cabins are clean, fully stocked, and spacious. The decks are a true selling point, surrounded by redwoods and with gorgeous views of the river. We got to use the canoe which was a lot of fun. The water level was extremely low for us so the dock wasn't in use but we were still able to access the river directly from the house. This place rocks!!
This place was a wonderful stay for our family of 9. It was nice to have two separate cabins with their own kitchens and living rooms. The place was clean and well-decorated and everything was very comfortable. Safeway was a close drive and it was easy to go hiking in the area.
I hosted a retreat for 10 guests, and we had a nice time at the cabins. The larger cabin had enough space for eating meals all together, and the decks made a good breakfast spot with an excellent view of the river. We found everything that we needed in the kitchens and bathrooms; the only things that we brought were food and toiletries. The hot tub was really nice too!
The cabins are close to town, with great access to Armstrong Redwoods and numerous wineries.
My friends and I had a great time at the Riverlily cottages over the long MLK weekend. The neighborhood is very quiet, and a short distance from town, making it easy to pick up groceries and firewood when we needed to. We loved the hot tub and the kitchens were fully stocked with everything we needed for a few different group meals. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were, and there was ton of seating on the deck and in the living rooms for everyone to enjoy the afternoons lounging. We definitely hope to be back!
We had a wonderful weekend staying at the Riverlily riverfront cottages and I would highly recommend them. We particularly liked the layout with one 2 bedroom and one 1 bedroom cabins allowing for communal space plus privacy.
Interaction with Anne during the reservation process was easy, and she supplied detailed arrival and general information. We found the listing and photos accurate, hottub delightful, and the deck a perfect place to relax and enjoy the scenery. One note: the pellet heater in the main cabin was pretty tricky to operate, despite the several-page instructions Anne thoughtfully provided. Fortunately, the normal heater works just fine.
Thanks for a wonderful visit!
The two cabins were perfect for my family and I and had enough towels and bedding for my group of 10 people. Everything was in working order for the most part and the rooms were as pictured. Unfortunately, due to our busy plans that weekend, we didn't get the chance to explore and enjoy the Russian River and the town. But I definitely would come back and stay here again!
The Riverlily cottages were great! They look as good as the photos & are located right on the river. It was a perfect getaway for me & my friends. Everything in the house was clean and in great condition. The spa was unfortunately broken, but Anne was prompt to inform us and make efforts to fix it. We utilized the canoe a lot (which we loved, located right on a private dock!!!!), but many of the river inflatable items had holes and there weren't any kayaks as mentioned.

I have lived in the Mission for over 30 years. I enjoy referring guests to all the wonderful old and new places to eat, shop and explore the neighborhood.
